"I have personally never seen anyone work harder for the things that are near and dear to my heart about education, and who still believes that positive change and a different perspective are possible to create. His passion for education, special needs advocacy, and entrepreneurial integrity are unmatched." - Chad Collins, Educator and Friend

"Dylan has been involved in helping people in his community from a young age. He has a heart of gold and I know he will serve his community well. " - Bridget Coughlin, Friend

"Hardworking, energetic, always questioning, always learning, always polite, Dylan Rafaty who is running for Place 7 on the Plano ISD will make a great ISD trustee. He cares about the community, he cares about public education, and he cares about Plano's youth." - Mark Phariss & Vic Holmes, Proud Plano Residents and Friends

"I enthusiastically endorse my friend Dylan Rafaty for the Plano ISD school board. Here’s why: 1. A product of PISD’s special education efforts, Dylan has personal experience in an extremely expensive educational field which no other candidate has. While his learning needs were very different from my twins’, Dylan has always demonstrated a rare empathy and understanding of issues all students face. 2. In Plano, you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a lawyer, real estate agent, business exec or supermom who wants to be on the school board to push STEM curriculum and other such things. As a young graduate from Collin College with plans to get his bachelor’s degree, Dylan’s refreshing perspective will be incredibly valuable. 3. With Yoram Solomon (Current Board Trustee, Plano ISD - Place 4) choosing not to run for re-election, the board needs another out-of-the-box thinking, uber-engaged, Mr. Plano to keep the rest of them on their toes. 4. He’s not full of crap." - Clay and Carole Boatright, Proud Plano Residents and Special Education Advocates

"Dylan Rafaty will prove to be a strong asset and advocate to the education of ALL of our children." - Bill Wallace, Founder, Success North Dallas

"As a 25-year school teacher, I can clearly see that Dylan Rafaty is the man for the job for Plano ISD Board of Trustees Place 7. Dylan said at a recent meeting that his teachers had advocated for him all through his school years, and now he will advocate for teachers. I want to see Dylan representing me and other educators in Plano, our students, and our wonderful community."- Debbie O'Reilly, Educator

"Dylan Rafaty is one of the most passionate men I know who truly cares about our PISD children, their education and environment." - Mimi Conner, Parent and Entrepreneur

"As you know, Lisa and I are very involved in helping make sure the disabled have every service and opportunity reasonably possibly. There are many that have a heart for the disabled but it is hard to empathize until you have been there yourself or a close family member. For those of you in the Plano ISD, you have the opportunity to vote for someone that lives with a disability and has dedicated his adult life to working for those with disabilities that might not be able to advocate for themselves. This person is Dylan Rafaty. Hands down he is the best candidate and added bonus for our special needs students." - Ron and Lisa Simmons, Disability Community Leaders
